More about you

My main area(s) of expertise
performance management and evaluation in international aid and development
My main interest in monitoring and/or evaluation
understanding which things work best and how to use that information to improve performance, how to measure at a level useful to inform policy decisions, how to be useful for local organisations and governments. I am particularly interested in realist evaluation and realist synthesis methods - ways to measure 'what works for whom in what contexts and how?'

Other information about me
I have worked in international development since 1985 when I volunteered with a small NGO in an Egyptian village. I spent 11 years in the Middle East working with NGOs and later worked with CARE in Australia and the Australian Government's aid program, mostly with the Office of Development Effectiveness, until 2014. I am now studying part time and doing private consulting work.
